Written on the 5 April 2018

Students were issued their first Progress Report on Holy Thursday. This report provides a 'snapshot' of your child's progress to date and will have highlighted areas of achievement and/or areas for improvement.

Parent Teacher Nights (PTN)
Teachers are looking forward to meeting parents at the upcoming parent teacher nights. Please bring along your child's Progress Report and any questions you may have such as:

"Tell me about my child's effort in this subject"
"How is my child progressing in this subject compared to the rest of the class or year cohort?"
"What are my child's strengths and what goals should we be aiming for in this subject?"
"What can I do to help my child's performance?"

  • Year 12 PTN - Thursday 5 April in the Br Joseph McAteer Function Centre (4.15pm to 7.15pm).
  • Year 10 and 11 PTN - Monday 9 April in the Br Joseph McAteer Function Centre (2.15pm to 7.15pm).

Year 12 - Research Project Focus Day
On Monday 26 March, all Year 12 students attended a day-long Research Project session with their RP teacher. This was an invaluable day where students were able to make enormous inroads with their work with a view to completing and submitting their investigations in June. Many thanks to all teachers for their focus and commitment to the Year 12 students. Should you have any questions about the Research Project, you are very welcome to contact your child's RP teacher, or the Head of Cross Disciplinary Studies (Mrs Rachel Aldrich).

National Young Leaders Day
Sacred Heart College Year 9 and Year 11 student leaders joined several hundred other student leaders from secondary schools across South Australia at the Adelaide Convention Centre last Wednesday 28 March for the National Young Leaders Day. Halogen gathers together prominent leaders from all walks of life to be part of The National Young Leaders Day. Guest speakers included: John Coutis, Kane Cornes, Bronwyn Klei, and Major Russell Scutchings. Halogen ran the first National Young Leaders Day in Sydney 1997 and has evolved significantly since this time. The National Young Leaders Day quickly expanded into primary and secondary student events and became an annual event in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. In this 20 year period over 365,000 people have attended a National Young Leaders Day.

Year 12 Formal
Our 2018 Year 12 Formal will be held this Saturday evening. I am looking forward to a wonderful evening and take this opportunity to thank all those who have played a part in organising the event. In particular, Alex Dighton (Director of Students), Kathryn Mortlock (Personal Assistant to Deputy Principal) and Amanda Reichelt (Student Services Officer).

End of Term 1
This is our final newsletter for Term 1. I wish you and your family a safe and restful holiday, and look forward to a productive and energised group of students returning to our campus on Monday 30 April.
